Internet Archives, Gedmatch and Gedcom, and more – Genealogy Video Roundup

Watch the latest genealogy videos on YouTube #genealogy #videos

This week’s genealogy video roundup includes tips for becoming a better genealogist, learning how to use GEDmatch to compare family trees, finding out what’s new on Ancestry.com and a few fun videos about the Battle of Iwo Jima and who would be King if George Washington didn’t decline the opportunity to reign. 

What it doesn’t include is the troubling use of genealogical research to attack living individuals for their ancestors’ choices. On the one hand, wouldn’t it be great if we had so many people climbing their trees and piecing history together? On the other hand, the sins of the fathers should not be passed on to their descendants. So, I’ve excluded videos about this topic.

Check out these great videos that teach you how to get started in genealogy, use MyHeritage and Geni, and more. 

Genetic Genealogy Videos

It was a slow week for new genetic genealogy videos unless you wanted to watch DNA test result reveals from Hungary and Turkey. I did find a few for you to video. 

History and Social Context

Without history, genealogy does not progress very far and we don’t understand our ancestors. These videos talk about the historical research process, have a fun look at alternative history, and provide context for history.

Roundup Guidelines

Genealogy channels are popping up on YouTube all the time. If you find a channel that should make this list, let me know and we’ll keep an eye on them.

Remember, there are several genealogy channels that don’t make the lineup because they:

  • Disable comments, which doesn’t help create a community on YouTube
  • They are really audio recordings that are better listened to on a Podcast player.
